As a plastic surgeon, specializing in reconstructing, modifying, or restoring the human body comes with years of schooling and practice. The pathway to becoming a plastic surgeon is not only time consuming but it is quite demanding.
According to the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, becoming a plastic surgeon requires obtaining a bachelor’s degree that spans for at least 3 to 6 years, taking the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), completing a 4-year degree from accredited medical school, undergoing residency training twice, choosing a specialty, and so on.
Achieving this feat takes years as well as a great deal of effort and money. So what happens if after obtaining this training, you can no longer work because of a disability? The projected income flow stops, and you may be saddled with a substantial amount of debt.
The thought of this can be devastating, but a reality check may help you avoid the consequences of not being able to work. Opting for a disability insurance policy is a smart way to plan for the unexpected. With disability insurance, your income flow is much more secure.
